Nokia Lumia 1020 white paper out: OIS redesigned, pixel-binning during video
If you want to know all the amazing technical details behind the best cameraphone out there, Nokia released the white paper for the Lumia 1020. Apparently all the great features of the 808 PureView and the Lumia 920 are combined, and then some.

The optical image stabilization, for example, is of a completely new generation, compared to the one found in the Nokia Lumia 920, as it uses a "new type of barrel shift actuator which enables moving a heavy and complex full lens assembly".

Novelty are also the manual controls that the dedicated Pro Camera app allows like EV, shutter speed, ISO, focus and white balance. Click on the button in the lower right corner for a full screen view of the nitty-gritty details about the video oversampling, lossless zoom, and high-amplitude stereo recording that come with the Lumia 1020.

But the OS is WP. Sorry. I don't support MS who abused their monopoly power to strangle the OS market for 15+ years.

And Nokia is busy suing the world with BS patents thanks to Elop and company. I don't support people who use patent trolls to sue others over FRAND patents either.

BS patents here's a fun fact
what Microsoft did is called business it's how companies make money

Nokia offers all company to pay royalties and if they refuse then they sue them
so take your BS and GTFO this is tech we're talking about not some fight over curves

Nokia is NOT looking to license ANY of their so called patents on video technology and is *specifically* suing only android phones over VP8.

Nokia transferred some LTE patents to a patent troll and is ONLY suing Motorola - and they did NOT negotiate any FRAND rate for it. Furthermore, it violates Nokia's own agreement to not charge more than 1.9% royalties on their LTE FRAND patents when they now have a troll suing over it.

Oh, and "microsoftnokiawin", your name says it all, retarded fanboi.

cinemagraph (animated gif) has been available since nov 2012 so I dont know what u r talking about, they just showed more improvements, but dont assume the S4 had it first because it didnt.

lumia had it long before the S4 and so does BB10 too i think because they're both signed with cinema graph which was the first to offer it (in a nice user friendly interface) on phones

... But it's WP. The camera is great and all, but WP is really dragging it down. Maybe when WP matures more, Nokia's new releases will become more relevant, but until then it's not anything exciting.

Also, aside from the camera, it's just a Lumia 920 with an extra GB of RAM. It's nice, but still very impractical for the every day consumer just like the 808 was. I'm not just hating on Nokia either, the GS4 Zoom is impractical as well. Any of these DSLR "replacement" smartphones are just silly. I would say that about any manufacturer that makes one; Apple, HTC, Motorola, Sony, Samsung, Nokia, anyone.

There are some potential good things about the camera hardware and software bundle that Nokia has released with the L1020. The first thing that caught my notice was the apparent reduction in moire (I know there is a missing accent on the e, but I can't figure out how to include it, so I am mentioning the omission) with the oversampling implementation of the L1020. I can't wait for the L1020 to get subjected to objective testing by some of the dedicated digital photography sites (like dpreview.com) to see how it compares to dedicated digital cameras.

This could be the smartphone camera to beat for 2013 and maybe 2014.

As a complete noob I hope Nokia makes this a fairly easy learn.

How can Nokia say this is new technology. Their "reinvented zoom" is not new technology, and it absolutely is not reinvented. And the oversampling is not new either, you can actually do "oversampling" with any kind of picture. If I were Nokia I´d tell the world that I used old technologies like downsampling to make pictures better :). No, I am just kidding, lumia 1020 will be the king in camera-department until someone makes an even better camera. But what I do not get is that this Nokia´s oversampling and "reinvented zoom" is so simple, why the hell isn´t, for an example, Samsung using it. Samsung has so much money and this is relatively simple. With Samsung´s money I would make such a camera that would put Nokia´s pureview to shame.
